Watery Wednesday (And 600!)

Hi all,

I am posting this image of a fish taking a nice swim.  Also, it's post 600 for me!  It's been a blessing to write for so many amazing meme's like Watery Wednesday and share my work with all of you.

My spotted friend
May I take a swim
And spend the day
In your cool presence

Crystal (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

I am writing for O.S.I. and the theme is crystal. 

There are things he said
She can't put to memory
Like his voice in the darkness
Profile etched in the moon
Conversation whispered between kisses

She can't replace the things he's broken
Her crystal heart aching to be mended
She gathers the scattered fragments
The colors within her shimmering beauty
Light to mend herself together again


Rain is crystal drops
Cascading down my window
Art and light on glass

Summer Sun!!

Hi Sky Watchers,

Someone turned up the heat on the East Coast.  Stay cool and Happy Sky Watch.

The hazy sun
Bakes the earth
A smoky aroma
And I dream
Of blue waves
And lazy days
On the beach

Waiting (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

This is my Tuesday night edition for O.S.I. and the theme is waiting. Hope you enjoy!!

Pretty plum girl
Twirls her parasol
Waits for a ride
While the rain stains
Against her rubber boots
And waits for the boy
On his bicycle
To smile and acknowledge
Her newfound womanhood

Father's Day (Haiku)

Hello all,

I'd like to wish all the dad's out there a Happy Father's Day.

You watched me proudly
Take my first breaths in this world
And opened your heart

My help and first guide
Strong and brave, a solid rock
Yet warm and gentle

Love I feel as you lift me
High into the sky

And rest securely
In the spirit of your voice
I celebrate you

Wanting (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

Here is my unique take for O.S.I. and the theme is wanting:

She lacks nothing
A statuesque blond
Golden bangles on her arm
And lips the color of wine
Charm as light as the breeze
And a smile easy to please
So what does she long for
When she's looking at me?

Dog's Mona Lisa

Hi all,

Here's a freestyle poem I recently wrote:

He was caught in the rain
Poor thing, a sight to behold
Brown fur matted
And his paws
Soaked to the bone
And the boys whistled dog
No owner, no home
He wouldn't budge
The first streak of lightning
Fell beside him
And he growled

Now the boys were foggy sticks
Though he followed them
Then the Mona Lisa caught him
A silver puddle
Like a woman's face
Or an angel
The world was caught in her
Rain, earth, and streetlights
Swirled up to him
So he stretched his paw
And tumbled in
A doggie's paradise

My Sky Watch

Lattice of green
Spiraling up
To see the sky
In all its beauty

Happy Sky Watch all!

Perfect lips
Lock and memory
Stains on glass

Happy June Skywatchers

A summer dream
Awakens me
A life of
Sandy toes
And beach dates
A blissful
June evening

Happy Sky Watch all!!
